WHO: Cross is an author (http://vial023.com (http://vial023.com)), patients rights advocate, medical ethics crusader and, most importantly, a Louisiana father whose hemophiliac son, Brad, died in April 1993 after becoming infected with HIV through contaminated blood used for his clotting factor treatment.

MORE: Cross’s talk is in conjunction with Phi Alpha Delta’s annual blood drive, which is going to be held on the previous day: Monday, April 7, 2014. Cross’ memoir, Vial 023: A Father's Pursuit of Justice tells a gripping and touching story of a largely unknown American health crisis involving the nation's blood supply. The crisis claimed many thousands of lives due to national irresponsibility and lack of proactive oversight. Cross recalls his personal, pivotal role in what was called the nation's "hemophilia HIV pandemic.”
About Patient Services, Inc. Patient Services, Inc. (PSI) https://www.patientservicesinc.org is a ground-breaking 501(c)(3) non-profit, charitable organization. Two decades ago, we recognized the importance of providing a "safety net" for patients with chronic illnesses who were struggling to keep up with expensive premiums and co-payments. Since 1989 we have led the charge to provide much needed patient assistance, soliciting donations to fund thousands of patients and their families in a myriad of disease areas. Today we're flattered by our emulators (other similar foundations)
